Nazi references are so hot right now!

Senator Durbin got into all kinds of shiznit yesterday for using a Hitler metaphor when talking about Guantanomo Bay. But where was the Washington Times's outrage when Tom Cruise--the soon-to-be Mr. Katie Holmes--called psychiatry a Nazi science in an interview with Entertainment Weekly?

EW: You are aware that your views about psychiatry come across as pretty radical to a lot of people.
CRUISE: In the 1980s, you were supposed to say no to drugs. But when I say no to drugs, I'm a radical? 'He's against drugs -- he's a radical! He's against electroshock treatments -- he's a radical!' [Laughing] It's absurd!
EW: Yeah, but Scientology textbooks sometimes refer to psychiatry as a ''Nazi science''...
CRUISE: Well, look at the history. Jung wasan editor for the Nazi papers during World War II. [According to Aryeh Madenbaum, the director of the New York Center for Jungian Studies, this is not true.] Look at the experimentation the Nazis did with electric shock and drugging. Look at the drug methadone. That was
riginally called Adolophine. It was named after Adolf Hitler... [According
to the Dictionary of Drugs and Medications, among other sources, this is an urban legend.]

Tom is totally going all Mel Gibson's Daddy on our asses. FREE KATIE!!

All the bad Thetans are blocking your ability to see the truth that L. Ron revealed in his excellent series of books. We need to audit this whole blog and get rid of all of the engrams that we got before we were born. And then we will be as good actors as Tom Cruise and John Travolta.
